  1. now new technologies have arrived and books can be read through Internets. It is good to use e-books .some reasons of this are :
    thousands of trees are cut to make a single book and if it goes like this the nature will be in trouble so it will be good if we use e-books.
    sometimes the pages of books are eaten or damaged by insects , not only that when we don't take a good care of books we may also become the reasons of damaging books so it will be good if we use e-books

    2. There are so many technologies and they all help us. But, if there is so many facilities why there are so many libraries compared to internet cafe?. I think in my opinion, these technologies are making us so lazy because in 1950's there were all regular printed books which all our parents are so lucky to read it and reading it is really a exercise. If we go on like this there will be machines to do our homeworks and it will REALLY harm our body.

  2. In my opinion both are equal. But I prefer printed books because it won't make problems in our body if we read it properly. On the other hand, E-Books are easily available but it causes eye problems. I like turning pages than to scroll the mouse and by reading E-books you will be a couch potato. Printed books are wastage of trees and E- books are wastage of electricity. My strong request is printed pages can be recycled and it should be recycled. E-books gadgets are more costly compared to books.

  3. I also like reading E-books because it have inbuilt tools in it to help us understand the summary of the book and also other things like Dictionary for word by word translations. But I prefer reading printed book rather than E-books, because consequences faced by reading printed books is less than that of E-books.

    1. Sayooj, Didn't you take that line out of the English Olympiad passage? But yes you are right though . They do have inbuilt tools. But looking up a word in a Dictionary is more interesting.

    2. I think when we are reading and we saw any difficult words,we should think of some meanings related to that particular problem. By doing it so we can built our analyzing power. Looking through dictionary is fun but we will soon fed up by it and in E-books we will be so lazy.
